Article in International Journal of Gynecology and Obstetrics by Afulani, P. A., Feeser, K., Sudhinaraset, M., Aborigo, R., Montagu, D. and Chakraborty, N. using data from Ghana, Kenya, and India to develop a shortened, valid and reliable scale applicable across multiple settings for routine monitoring of person‐centered maternity care (PCMC). Thirteen items were retained for a potential multi‐setting short PCMC scale, representing a 47% shorter PCMC scale, incorporating the domains of dignity and respect, communication and autonomy, and supportive care.
